Notes:
Includes preface in English and German; biographies and composer's notes in English.
Georgiadis's, Scholl's, and Simonini's works are played partially inside the piano on the strings.
Graewe's work incorrectly identified in the index as Behauptung und Nachtrag III; it is, in fact, number 10.
Jurgschat's work for partially prepared piano; reproduced from manuscript.
In Niedecken's work, "the pianist should improvise, based on any Kyrie eleison," while (s)he, or someone else recited text below." The text is in German. Kessel's work can be played instead of the pianist playing his own improvisation. It can also be played as a solo piano piece without the text. Kessel's work played partially inside the piano.
Schropp's work requires the pianist to wear a cardboard box on their head with a print of Beethoven's death mask pasted to it and ear-clips which seal the ears entirely. Prior to the performance, the pianist or anybody else can request that the entire audience cover their ears for the duration of the piece. The piano is prepared with small pieces of rubber, a plastic bag, and a piece of wood. The pianist performs both on the prepared piano and on an imaginary piano placed perpendicular to the real piano. At the end the pianist shouts at the audience in German. Graphic notation.
Ulus's work for piano prepared with rubber and tuning forks; performed primarily inside the piano with hands and tuning fork. Graphic notation. Reproduced from signed holograph.
Includes biographies and program notes by the composers.
